Iwalani Martin Performs Original Dance at Symposium

“Turbulence and Flow” explores how water flows  


Iwalani Martin ’10 presented, “Turbulence and Flow” at the Symposium for Artists & Scholars on April 18, 2009 at Randolph College.

Martin choreographed the piece under the guidance of her faculty mentor, Kelly Dudley, adjunct instructor in dance, while an undergraduate student at Randolph College.

An abstract of piece follows...

This is a dance that explores how water flows. Specifically, dancers manipulate water from on stage to off stage in various forms, as well as using other modes of transportation such as wet hair or towels. The exploration includes finding the different rhythms of water found throughout nature, trying to apply them to movement, and manipulating those rhythms to expound on the understanding of water’s rhythm.

The Student Symposium of Artists and Scholars provides Randolph College students from all classes and disciplines the opportunity to present the results of their research, scholarship, and creative work to the entire College community and beyond.

The two-day symposium, modeled after a typical academic conference, features oral presentations of student research, readings of creative work, musical performances, and exhibitions of student artwork. The symposium also includes a poster session, reception and a keynote address from a noteworthy academic speaker.
